Benin-born singer and guitarist Kaleta grew up performing Afrobeat with the gods: Fela Kuti, King Sunny Ade, and other members of the pantheon. Now based in New York, he and his brass-bolstered 13-member group Zozo Afrobeat Orchestra remain fiercely devoted to the locked-in grooves and political consciousness of that propulsive style, having entertained audiences at Central Park Summerstage, Lincoln Center Out of Doors Festival, and well beyond.
